Cambridge Series 13: Thinking Without A Brain – How Plants Decide What To Do

Venue: Oxfam Moot

It is easy to assume that plants don’t do much; and many expressions for inactivity involve plant metaphors – such as the ‘couch potato’. However, plants, including potatoes, are as busy as the rest of us assessing their surroundings and changing their activity accordingly. ​ Dame Ottoline Leyser is Professor of Plant Development and Director of the Sainsbury Laboratory.
